Archaeology Field School Description


Making a video documentary in the Archaeological Film School (Menorca, Spain)

1. General Information

The Sanisera Archaeology Institute offers an annual archaeology dig on the island of Menorca. Its courses are for students who come from all over the world to study abroad and who are interested in Roman cities, classical archaeology and biological anthropology. This Field School has designed a course for students interested in film studies related to archaeology, as well as for participants interested in learning how to produce a video documentary and film studies related to archaeology. Fieldwork will focus in two different sites. The first is The Roman Necropolis, which involves the excavation of a cluster of Roman tombs belonging to a cemetery located on the outskirts of the roman city of Sanisera, which was occupied from 400 BC to 550 AD. The second is the excavation of the Ancient Roman City of Sanisera, overlooking the natural port of Sanitja. This film school consists of two main parts. The first one deals with filming a video documentary so that the audience can get to know more about the archaeological findings, the history of the two sites and the archaeological work carried out both on site and in the laboratory. In the second part of the course students will learn about the process of creating a documentary: preparing the plot, shooting on the site, selection of scenes, editing the video documentary and sound, as well as different elements regarding audiovisuals. The director of this program is Macià Florit, an expert in film production of cultural, fiction and non-fiction videos. Also, archaeologists and specialists in biological anthropology and conservation will collaborate during the course.

2. Directed at Students in the field of archaeology and anthropology should know how to disseminate their research and/or work in order to be more efficient and competitive. The transmission of information is increasingly more rapid and the production of material in video is necessary for quality of this area of work. Archaeologist and Anthropologist that excavate frequently discover a wealth of information related to their field, including the recovery of objects that should be communicated as soon as possible. It is essential to communicate discoveries, new hypotheses and theories through technological channels, social networks, websites, blogs, etc. If you are interested in enhancing your studies and experiences in archaeology by learning in-depth film techniques, editing and video production centered on scientific research, then this is the course you should select. You will film and prepare an archaeological script with the guidance of your professor, gaining skills and knowledge that can be applied in future projects. While participating in this course, other students will be excavating the remains of a Roman city and a cluster of graves. Therefore you will have the opportunity to film real archaeological scenes and follow the treatment of discovered artifact in the laboratory. The program takes place in Menorca, an island in the Mediterranean, a unique and privileged place, pristine and preserved surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea. Previous knowledge or experience in archaeology or computer systems is not required.

3. Field School life & language The course runs 7 hours per day, with time dedicated to both video footage while the archaeologists are excavating, and the processing of the digital documentation in order to create the archaeological documentary film. Participants will also be given lectures on methodology regarding film productions, movie trailers and some examples of the best films about Archaeology. Participants will also visit archaeological sites on the island through organized excursions. Courses are given in both English and Spanish. For every seven course days there are two days off.

4. Certificates At the end of the Field Program, students will receive a certificate of participation stating the hours and activities of the course. Participants that perform exceedingly well in the course may receive a letter of recommendation from our organization upon request.
